Often overshadowed by the glittering Bangkok and the party-capital Pattaya, Rayong is a beautiful small city just 2 hours drive away from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi airport. Rayong is a destination for those who want to enjoy the serenity of beaches while gazing the sun rising above the sea, with a soothing music in the background by mischievously playing waves. Unlike, Pattaya and other touristy hubs, Rayong never fails to give you an authentic Thai feel. Just 1 hour away from the Pattaya, Rayong could be a great stop for on-the-go travellers.

Getting There

Rayong has few of the most luxurious properties worth coming for. One of the most beautiful and affordable property is Marriott Resort and Spa in Rayong. You can stay in this 5-star property for as long as you want and don’t worry it won’t squeeze your wallet!! Marriott has a wide range of rooms and villas with a private beach and three outdoor swimming pools.

The Hotel

It was 7 in the evening when we arrived at Marriott. The cosy dim lights at the huge entrance and the sweet lemongrass aroma welcomed us as soon as we entered the hotel. Expect a very warm and friendly welcome by the hotel staff. Wet towels, refreshing flower drink and quick check-in process after a long day was a bliss.  With a private beach in its kitty, Marriott resort and spa has a wide range of stylish rooms with ocean and the mountain view. The resort not just have 1 but 3 outdoor pools, a spa and a fitness centre.

The Room

Luxury Speaks itself, ‘Ocean suite’ completely justified this phrase. The luxury suite is perfect for honeymooners or families who are planning to relax at the property. It has one bedroom with a picturesque view of the ocean, one living room equipped with a modern kitchen & dining table, and one spacious bathroom with a Jacuzzi along with a scenic view.

And, the highlight of their suite is the Terrace swimming pool.
